, santorum, newt gingrich, mike huckabee. laura, it's like you said, they are right there with him. it's like business as usual. >> business as usual, that's correct. he continues to roll out the controversial comments. just last week he said that his opponent, claire mccaskill was being not laidly-like. it was a comment straight out of the '60s and to hear that he doesn't support equal pay for the same work for women, beyond i didn't agree with the lilly leadbetter pay fair act, he went further than that and said, maybe it shouldn't be illegal for women at all to be paid less for men for the same work. and he cited freedom and where is the outrage now? the outrage is gone. >> that's what i'm concerned about here. where is the moderate republican? where are the republicans that stands up and denounces this now? >> the only person that i've seen is chris christie, who is a more modulate state moderate state. >> i mean, frankly, the inmates are running the asylum at this point. >> this is amazing. and it's the legacy of all of these anti-abortion campaigns and crusades that they've had and

the debates. we saw this during the republican primary. he faced a challenge from newt gingrich, he won. he faced a challenge from rick perry. people would say hey, this is a do-or-die debate. mitt romney must prove he can deliver the knockout blow, and he did do it in the debates time and time again. >> he did look very presidential in that group. we'll see how he does next to president obama which i think is a little bit different. >> yeah. >> that ohio poll is interesting because the cbs one we had last week had it at ten points. now we have another one showing it at nine points. if you start to look at the map, if he doesn't take iowa, if it gets away from him, it becomes difficult to put a puzzle together to win. >> by the way, there has been this narrative that there is the grand conspiracy and that the polls are skewed. this is what walter mondale said in 1984. this is what moveon.org said in 2004, that all the polls were skewed against john kerry and moveon.org said you just wait. and now you're hearing it frantically on the other side, which ironically, again, they are putt

find myself agreeing, but narrowly, with newt gingrich here. let's embrace the essence of the lincoln douglas senate debates of 1858, the democratic spirit of two candidates facing off with 90 minutes, no moderator, freely open to the populous to decide who wins the war of ideas. aren't the presidential dae baits when we test the mettle of each side's convictions and the substance of their policy. this has become an ideologically driven election. no longer referendum on foreign wars or economic failings, this is a choice of doctrine and of direction. so perhaps that's why i don't mind sharing a little political science secret with you. although the debates routinely draw large viewing audiences, evidence shows that voters do learn a little bit of information from them, but political scientists also tend to agree that debates don't actually make a difference in the outcome. sorry. it's at least statistically true. most often, you can accurately predict where a race will end up after the debates by knowing where things stood before the debates. but don't tell the candidates. because wit

pretty much a business decision. but former speaker newt gingrich threw his support behind akin earlier this week. he also get mike huckabee's report, senator kit bond are following suit. the chair of the republican national committee said he would not support akin not matter what. >> are you going to support him? >> no, no. it can be tight. we're not going to send him a penny. >> but reince priebus may be changing his behind on akin, too. today he told cbs news "as chairman of the party i have an obligation to make sure we win as many seats in the senate as possible. the republicans need the race, no question about it. we'll see how far they're going to go to actually win it. in the meantime, akin has found a new way to insult women in missouri. democrat claire mccaskell, her campaign is circulating new video of akin explaining why he doesn't support the fair pay act. >> i believe in free enterprise. i don't think the government should be telling people what you pay and what you don't pay. i think it's about freedom. if somebody wants to hire somebody and they agree on a salary, that's

wrong with that. newt gingrich called it vulture capital lic capitalism. it's looking at a way of creating jobs, being a stake holder in the community and thinking about the long run. that's not what you're look at. mitt romney was just talking the jargon of someone who does private equity and it's just not -- at the same time, though, in the last year he's told us that he can create jobs and knows the economy better because of his bain cap pal experience. >> but michelle, let me ask you, harvest companies -- buy companies and harvest them, where can you even find the most generous stretch you can, find job creation? >> it is unfortunate imagery and it's a rarafied field and this is the downside to the way romney has made his entire campaign, kind of a referendum on obama' private sector experience, he talks up a good game, you know, kind of inflating what any president would be able to do on the job creation front. so, you know, you run across something like this and of course people are going to jump on it because romney himself has made job creation and his ability to do that c

santorum, newt gingrich, other conservatives rallying around akin and calling on washington leaders to put money into that race. they still think it's winnable. in an interview with us, akin said, listen, my eyes have been opened. i now see how many people don't understand conservatism. he's talking about mitch mcconnell who runs the republican conference. and he was talking about myitt romney and karl rove and all the other people who distanced himself from him over his comments. does the republican senator ideal committee start to put money back into the race? they promised not to. we heard they're rethinking that decision, because they have to win it or they're not going to win a clear majority in the senate. >> boy, john heilemann, that puts him in a difficult position. by the way, akin saying that there's some people in washington that don't understand conservatism. i don't think that's the case. i think, again, and i quote nicole wallace who says, you know, people are debating about whether we'll be the conservative party, the moderate party, i'm just tired of us being the stupid

republicans particularly newt gingrich like to call barack obama the food stamp president. wonder if they would characterize jpmorgan as the food stamp bank. turns out the company is making millions on the so-called welfare state. we will explain next in what now.

you could say. earlier this week, it was former house speaker newt gingrich. today, former presidential candidate rick santorum in south carolina, and senator jim demint got together endorsing akin in a joint statement. and now that the deadline for akin to withdraw from the race has passed, it's looking like republicans may have no choice but to fall in line behind his campaign in a last-ditch effort to oust claire mccaskill and maybe grab the senate, which for some means they're just going to have to do a flat-out 180. senator roy blunt was one of the many politicians who publicly urged akin to get out of here. >> you know, i think it's a distraction and "the wall street journal" again this morning said todd needs to get out of this race, because the things he's for are actually being held back by all the focus on him and some comments he's made. >> but late tuesday night, just after the 5:00 p.m. deadline, blunt issued a statement announcing his support for the congressman.

against rick santorum or newt gingrich or rick perry. always debating four or five people who were really sort of aiming at him. he was the frontrunner throughout. barack obama had four debates against hillary clinton, one on one in the 2008 democratic primary, then three debates against john mccain. it's a different dynamic than to be the frontrunner where four or five people are aiming at you throughout a debate. >> here we are on the eve practically of the first debate and it's supposed to be an economic, domestic policy. >> right. >> and now foreign policy has reared its head. we have first of all mitt romney and "the wall street journal" an op-ed, saying that these developments are not as president obama says, mere bumps in the road. they are major issues that put our security at risk, yet amid this upheaval our country seems to be at the mercy of events rather than shaping them, not moving them in a direction that protects our people or allies. and paul ryan just now on the laura engram radio show, saying this about afghanistan. >> that echos also what john mccain said on "morning j

lot of pressure from the tea party folks, from people like jim demint, from newt gingrich, rick santorum, as if those guys hadn't done enough for the republican party already this year by forcing romney way to the right. but this is a really hard decision politically and practically for republicans to make. first, it's going to cost a lot of money if they go back in. they canceled all the air time. to buy the spots now would cost five or six times more than the money that they already had there in the first place. secondly, it's not politically good for the republican party or for mitt romney or for their senate and house candidates to be associated in any way with this guy. they already have a huge gender gap. look, he didn't drop out. the voters are going to drop him in november and maybe fury will tell me he disseptembers from this, and i'm sure he does, but privately a lot of republicans will say this guy can't win. >> the news here today, you referred to how he referred to this -- this is todd akin -- how he referred to his democratic opponent, the incumbent senator claire

debates and he was very good at getting under the skin of rick perry and newt gingrich. that's something obama has to watch out for as well. >> erin, you've been in ohio. unemployment there is at 7.2% which is better than the national average. the president's leading in the latest polls there. so how concerned is the romney camp about that state, and what is their plan? >> there is some serious concern in the romney campaign and in republicans throughout ohio that president obama is in much better shape. they point to cleveland where there is a very heavy population base, manufacturing is big there and the auto bailout really did help industries up there. and some of the thinking goes, if president obama can turn out a lot of people in northern ohio, it's over in ohio. and they might be best to look elsewhere. now, the romney campaign is taking a harder line against china than ever before. he's always been very strong against china. so that's a message that they think will resonate in ohio. another thing we heard from mitt romney tempering his tax plan, saying he is planning to cut exemp

jim demint rick santorum and newt gingrich. that will get him the women's vote, yes? >> i don't think i've been this giddy in my 20 years in politics, i'll be brutally honest with you. listen, this is a bad thing for the republicans. if you look at every single republican running for the higher office in the building behind me go state by state, go to never never, florida, go to every single one of them anti-equal gay rights. every one of them want to be in a woman's bedroom or doctor's office. every single one don't think our personal privacy or freedoms is something to be legislated. todd akin is at the top of the list. he's the king of being invasive and violating the pajama test. if you're wearing your pajamas, the government should not be involved. he's right of the right. missouri is turning more right than i thought it would be at this time. he still probably could lose. that's amazing to me. i'd be interested in what goldie as a woman, and what julien as a strategist might think. i think he's a bad candidate and claire mccaskill may sail through. >> julien, we know that mr. ry
